  1. I was talking about this with my son yesterday. I do expect this to cost Trump votes from the military. Trump has also recently insulted basically all the governors, so I expect some of them will provide lukewarm support, at best, approaching the election. I also expect that a number of Republicans will come to the conclusion that four years of Trump got them a conservative Supreme Court, so they have little need to support him again (and might just stay home in November). Bottom line, I expect Trump is going to get a major thumping in November. The rest of the summer is lost due to ongoing Covid, protests, and at some point the Minneapolis trials. Next to nothing will be achieved in the early fall (since little is being achieved now anyway). I just don't see how anything could swing things back in Trump's favor ...having not achieved a majority of the vote four years ago.
  2. The movie does such as excellent job of placing songs in the right context. The simple beauty of Yesterday; the early rockers as played in the studio; In My Life; Back in the U.S.S.R.; Long and Winding Road; Eleanor Rigby bouncing in and out of the story; the wailing version of Help!; the concert montage; the joy of Ob-la-di Ob-la-da to end it. Their messing around with Hey Jude was frustrating, but he expressed our frustration ...and the real version kept us glued to our theater seats at the end (we had a small crowd, so it didn't turn in to a sing-along, unfortunately).
  3. @Don Hutson - makes ya wonder what would have happened if we would have responded more quickly but with a less drastic approach (e.g., following the example of Japan, for example). Could we have slowed the virus without the economic turmoil? We'll never know. -- Sadly, a new high in cases at Covid worldometers. 130,000 new cases (a new high); 5,500 deaths. Yes, more cases is tied to more testing. But it's still a lot of cases. Brazil with almost 32,000, ahead of the US' 22,000 cases. As has been the trend, seventeen countries with over 1,000 new cases. A 9% increase in South Africa; a 15% increase in Nepal; a 10% increase in Ethiopia. Not a good day.
  4. Man, that stinks. I suppose they're working down their list as many others, such as yourself, opt out, given the significant uncertainty of spring, 2021 races (Boston, too? ). What a mess for our little corner of the world.
  5. I'm sure you are. The Japanese are known for having, um, small shovels.
  6. Not sure if mentioned yet, but on the Chicago news last night was video of three black women (one who is in her late 50s) who had unknowingly gone to a mall to shop ..not realizing the stores were closed due to earlier problems. The video, shot by a friend or relative in a second car, shows about a dozen cops attacking the car on the middle of the parking lot. They smashed windows, dragged the women out of the car, kept them on the ground. I can't imagine why they'd do that. This was three miles from my house.
  7. Numbers back up at Covid worldometers. Over 121,000 new cases (led by Brazil) and over 4,900 deaths. If this is the high point of deaths for the week, then the downward trend on deaths will continue. Let's hope so.
  8. I'm currently in a FB debate with my DIL's father about the "false narrative" of what happened in Lafayette Square. This stems from him posting a Trump Team video and declaring we have a party of love (=Republicans) and a party of hate. The video, apparently, seals the deal about which party is which.
  9. The one 50K I did several years ago (as part of a four-man team race; I got the long distance) had a lot of rocks and roots. I went down four times and stumbled several more times. After that, I'm now gun-shy about technical trails.
  10. Just like he was searching for a church (and found one!) with his Holy Divining rod.
  11. Well there's a fall competition you could get behind - a 50K event. Points earned for elevation and/or speed; points deducted for spreading out the miles over multiple days. E.g.: 50K ...........................TIME............................... Fastest Fast Moderate Slow Slowest Elevation Max 20 points 18 16 14 12 Moderate 18 16 14 12 10 Some 16 14 12 10 8 Little 14 12 10 8 6 None 12 10 8 6 4 Spread over two days: Deduct 5 points Spread over three days: Deduct 10 points Pavement: Deduct 3 points
  12. Yeah, I thought about mentioning that myself, but decided to let it stand as it was written.
  13. Well stated: "This is an awful man, waving a book he hasn’t read, in front of a church he doesn’t attend, invoking laws he doesn’t understand, against fellow Americans he sees as enemies, wielding a military he dodged serving, to protect power he gained via accepting foreign interference..." On a positive note, I saw this touching article on CNN.
